Topic: Brazil Carmo de Minas Peaberry (4 msgs / 93 lines)
1) From: Kristoffer Johansson
Hello. I recently bought the Brazil Carmo de Minas Peaberry, and roasted 
it yesterday. I couldn't hear any FC at all when I roasted it. Is this 
normal for peaberrys? I've only roasted a Kenya peaberry before, and it 
had an audible FC.
Thanks

Not sure about the Brazil, but I've had that happen on other 
peaberry roasts. All of a sudden I'm in the middle of a rolling 
2nd crack while totally missing 1st.  Found I had to back off my 
initial temp to get the 1st to be audible.
I'm using an RK drum, so of course, ymmv

I don't do drum, but have often had difficulty roasting peaberries due to
the way they tended to pack in.  The heat would build in the bean mass too
quickly and 1st went by all too quickly.  My roaster is a WBP.

Every now and then I get a batch of beans with very few snaps of first
crack. I roast with a heat gun, with beans in a colander nested inside a
stainless steel bowl. A few years ago I bought a digital thermometer from
Tom (http://www.sweetmarias.com/sweetmarias/coffee-roasters/roasting-supplies/digital-thermometer-with-thermocouple.html)and threaded the thermocouple wire through some wires of the colander,
so
I have an idea of bean temp, which can be handy in trying to decide whether
the snap or two I heard was just an outlier or two, or whether that is
going to be it for first crack.
